There are maybe twenty rows of knitting between me and a finished Pressed Flowers Cowl.
I could be done in a zipzap minute.
But for some reason, I keep not finishing it. I think it may be because I am loving this project so much. It is everything: clever, quick, and full of surprises. It’s such an end-of-camp feeling—hanging out the bus window howling “I don’t wanna goooooooooooo.”
The mosaic stitch pattern is so nice, a good intro to this way of slip-stitch knitting.
The back side looks as beautiful as the front. This is MDK Atlas in Leek for the main color, Spincycle Dream State in Salty Dog for the flowers. (Three skeins of Atlas for the main color, two skeins of Dream State for flowers.)
If you haven’t yet clambered onto the Amy Christoffers Bandwagon of Pressed Flowers, I don’t know what to say except that it is a really great bandwagon. There’s a whole rundown of the Pressed Flowers patterns and color ideas in my post last week. (Here you go.)
(Be sure to go see all that high-quality content—it was frankly one of those posts that took forever.)
Pressed Flowers is a situation where you can choose your dosage.
Cardigan: For when you gotta have sleeves.
They’re all superb designs. I dunno. When something’s fun, I want to get everybody to do the fun thing.
